Indian Fishing



I love this picture of an Indian Fishing. He is Hupa, and the picture was taken in 1923. I love the calmness of the lake, and it looks like it is early morning.

  1. I finally figured out what he is doing, he has a net on the end of two stick and waiting for a fish to scoop up.

  3. This is a beautiful picture. I wondered about what was tied to the poles that were in the water and it's a rock which I'm guessing is to keep the "dock" stationary in the water, giving it the needed weight to keep it from floating away.

    LOVE this picture.

  5. As one with nature.

    I wonder what that scene would look like today. Probably a fancy dimension lumber dock with lots of conveniences, like a roof and potty. Maybe a snack bar with some comfy chairs, fancy rods and reels. Maybe even a Dupont Spinner (dynamite) or two for enticing the spooky ones out. And a runabout tied along side for running around the lake with a ski-doo or two keeping the water riled up.

    Yup, nothing like being at one with nature.
